Blurb: Beneath the Deep: From the sea, mysterious things can arise.
Wayne needed a place to hide when an angry ex-boyfriend sends questionable pictures to several board members at the school where he teaches. Substituting as a lighthouse keeper for his buddy’s father, he finds stark beauty in how the waves crash on the rocks and solace in their sound.
His buddy, Easton, drops by with pizza and wine to buoy his spirits and together they find a naked man on the beach. Bringing the injured man inside his temporary home, Wayne learns the stranger’s name is Zarek, and he doesn’t want to be taken to the hospital. Against his better judgment, maybe because the sexy, black-haired man kissed like a God, Wayne agrees…even though he knows the man’s story is bogus.
When Wayne learns the truth, can he wrap his mind around everything and accept his new reality? Or will he wipe his hands of the sexy Zarek at his earliest opportunity?

Review: Wayne needed a place to hide and to heal from what had happened back home. His ex sent pictures of them having sex to his boss, and now the school had to make a decision on whether he could stay teaching or not. So for now he was watching over the lighthouse for his best friend’s father. He had just not expected to find a naked man on the beach. A naked man who was not all the way human, what a shocker.
Zarek was behind the movement of being allowed to hang around the humans, several hundred years of not being allowed to. However someone is out to get him, and now he has to hide out. Although finding his mate was a plus to his hiding out.
Charlie has given us a new series that is slightly different than her previous ones and I am loving it. Although I wish that they were a bit longer with more to it, this was a pretty damn good start.
It did come off a bit rushed to me however it doesn’t take away from the story itself. I loved how there is some humor mixed in with a serious tone to it. It had caught my attention from the start and kept it all the way to the end. I had fun reading it and would definitely recommend it.
